Abstract:

The utility industry is about to undergo a dramatic transformation. Thanks to the realities of an aging Baby Boomer workforce and shifting demographics in the North American population, utilities are going to change significantly in the years ahead. Over the next 10-15 years, there will be a mass exodus of Baby Boomers to retirement and the private sector. In their place, utilities must embrace the new American workforce that is more likely to be younger, non-white, and female. This presentation will address the workforce challenges facing utility leaders and explore effective strategies and tactics to embrace these changes.
